Fifth Generation Winemaker Karl D. Wente with Food Network Kitchens Chef Rob Bleifer and Wine Expert Rupa Bhattacharya
This Pinot Grigio is sustainably farmed and harvested from select vineyards in California, whose topography, soils and climate provide optimal grape-growing conditions to develop ripe, round fruit flavors.
The grapes were gently pressed and fermented in upright stainless steel tanks. The fermentation was kept cold to ensure a slow process that retains the natural fruit flavors inherent in the grapes.
The wine was aged 12 months in stainless steel tanks to maintain its crisp, fruity character.
Crisp, refreshing, and citrusy, like a green apple drizzled with lime juice and honey.

Varietal: Pinot Gris/Pinot Grigio
California produces the majority of wine made in the United States. Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc, Zinfandel and Pinot Noir dominate the wine production in California, but many other varietials thrive in the California climate. Many fine wines are produced in California using Mediterranean grapes.
